Dress to impress your date by wearing the most flattering silhouette for your body shape. What exactly is your body shape? It all boils down to how your weight is distributed. Start by asking yourself: which is narrower, your hips or shoulders? If your shoulders are narrower, you’re a Triangle. If your hips are narrower, you’re an Inverted Triangle. If they’re about the same, ask yourself, is your waist well defined? If it is, you’re an Hourglass (pretty perfect!). If your waist isn’t defined, do you have a full bust and stomach? You’re an Apple. If not, you’re a Rectangle.
